News: CNTS Releases New Song ‘I Won’t Work For You’

The Los Angeles band CNTS have released a second song, “I Won’t Work For You,” off of their upcoming album Thoughts & Prayers, set to release March 29 via IPECAC Recordings. There will also be a new music video coming out alongside the new single. It’s directed by Meriel O’Connell and was filmed at a pizza joint where Michael Crain worked. During tough times, Crain occasionally treated Cronk to a free slice.

Presave Thoughts & Prayers here.

Matt Cronk on the story behind the track:

“‘I Won’t Work For You’ was inspired by the talking point being bandied about, mostly by conservatives, that ‘nobody wants to work anymore’ after having collected unemployment during the lockdown. I think a more accurate way to frame that is that nobody wants to work for people who treat them badly. Nobody wants to work for the sole purpose of enriching someone else, and nor should they! Work sucks. I think a lot of people, myself included, are inspired to find more equitable means of supporting themselves or at least more from their employers.”
